There's growing concern that GM has made a series of bad decisions about the wheels for the C7 Corvette (2015-2019). 1) They used cast aluminum and not forged wheels. 2) They used less than the recommended amount of casted material. 3) They blame drivers when the wheels split apart after going over bumps

Now a lawsuit filed in California is accusing GM of systematically denying warranty coverage to owners with cracked wheel problems, even if the prolem happens well within the standard 3-year / 36,000 mile warranty.
